Reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles in your upper face
Forehead lines, crow’s feet and frown lines (the dreaded ‘number 11’ between the eyebrows) can all be drastically reduced using anti-wrinkle injections. These use a neurotoxin derived from a toxic bacterium. It has been approved and medically regulated and safe to use for fine lines and wrinkles. It is vitally important to receive your anti-wrinkle treatment from a trained and competent practitioner, knowledgeable in the correct dosage, safe techniques and safe areas to inject.

How does the treatment work?
In as little as ten minutes some carefully placed tiny injections will result in improvements which can be seen in just a few days. The toxin works by weakening the muscles. If the muscles can not move as well as normal the wrinkles can not form. Repeat injectables are required from 4 to 6 months later when the muscles start to more normally again.
Younger patients from the age of 25 can use anti-wrinkle injections preventatively. Most people wait until they can see wrinkles before seeking treatment but early treatment, before the wrinkles emerge, prevents deep fine lines developing. These lines which make you look older and tired are harder to treat once they have developed.

Are anti-wrinkle injections safe?
Yes, when administered by a trained and experienced professional, the treatment is completely safe. We provide a detailed consultation beforehand, ensuring you are fully informed before consenting to treatment.
When will my results appear?
Your results will be visible around four days following treatment. Over time, they will wear off and need to be topped up to maintain the effect on your lines and wrinkles. Most people find their results last an average of four months.
Will I experience any side effects?
You will most likely experience some slight redness and possibly bruising at the injection site, but this will not last long. You may also get a mild headache, especially if your forehead has been treated.
